Have you seen a butterfly lately?! The Cabbage White is about, and maybe the Mourning Cloak too. Come and find out what different species of butterflies are emerging and what food you should provide for them!
Bring your child to hear our speaker, Virginia Master Naturalist and butterfly enthusiast Gail Napora at this free event.

On Friday, park for free on University Boulevard (NOT Convo Lot G) and on Saturday, park for free in Convo Lot G or on University Blvd.
Advanced registration is not required for this event.

The plant sale will be ongoing at the time of the program, but come inside to the Education Center, and bring a friend. Then shop after the program for butterfly plants, shrubs, and trees!
For more information, visit our website or call us at 540-568-3194.

Pssst! Keep an eye out for two more butterfly events following this one coming to you later this year!
